In Praise of Diversity: Multicultural Classroom Applications was written for the classroom teacher who is interested in implementing multicultural education. The book includes 51 activities written in the following subject areas: Social Studies, Language Arts, Science/Math and Art. Included within the activities are two units. A mini-unit on "Understanding Feelings" will assist the student in examining himself/herself and his/her relationships with others; and a unit entitled "Immigration and Migration: Voluntary and Forced" will provide the teacher with an illustrative procedure to incorporate ideas and materials from the Vignettes in the companion document, In Praise of Diversity: A Resource Book for Multicultural Education. An order for implementing the activities is not suggested; however, it is recommended that the teacher start with the unit on "Understanding Feelings."
